Am I reading this wrong?

Actually, banning gay marriage is treating homosexuals the same as us. Just pointing that out.

No it's not. You are allowed to marry your partner. A gay person is not.
You are allowed to live together in a family only neighbourhood. A gay couple cannot.
You can be at your partner's bedside when they are dying. A gay person cannot.
You get a tax break for declaring your devotion to your partner. A gay person does not.
You are allowed to inherit your partner's things. A gay person is not.
How is that in any way equal?

God, everyone here is on a hair trigger. It's treating everyone the same because they all have the same rights. Everyone has the right to a heterosexual relationship and marriage. Now, you may not think that's fair. But it's still treating everyone the same.
Unless my monitor is playing tricks on me, you had exactly one response when you accused everyone on the thread of having a hair trigger. The fact that there were eventually seven doesn't erase the fact that you jumped to that conclusion well before it was warranted. Which would also indicate that the only reason you made the initial post was so that you could engage in some hand-wringing about how this thread/forum is a pro-gay rights echo chamber.
What I mean was that I posted one thing that was out of lockstep with the consensus on this forum, to which 11 tropers posted counterarguments.
All I did was point out that some people were making claims which I didn't think were correct. You seem primed and ready to have an argument with me that I'm sure you would win, if only I held the position I think you think I do.
Would you look at that!
